Connect your calendar to Meetings

You can connect your calendars to Brevo Meetings. Connecting your personal or professional calendar to Meetings is an effective way to automatically update your availability according to your existing commitments.

🗓️ Why connect your calendar to Meetings?

Connect your calendar to Meetings to simplify scheduling, prevent double bookings, and view meetings from your everyday calendar.

There are two types of calendars that you can connect: primary and additional.

Primary calendars Additional calendars

Your primary calendar(s) allow you to view your Meetings bookings from the connected calendar and update your availability for meetings. If you book a meeting with a client, it will appear automatically on your primary connected calendar. Your booking pages will show your availability according to your calendar. If there's an appointment on your connected calendar, clients cannot schedule a meeting during that time.

The primary calendars are:

  • Microsoft_Office_Outlook__2018_present_.svg.png Microsoft Outlook Calendar
  • Microsoft_Exchange__2019-present_.svg.png Microsoft Exchange Calendar [BETA]

🔗 Connect your own calendar to Meetings

You can connect Meetings to your calendar during the onboarding, but you can also do it at any time afterward:

  1. From Brevo, go to Meetings > Availability.
  2. Go to the Connected calendars tab.
  3. Click Connect calendar next to the calendar you want to connect.
  4. Depending on the type of calendar chosen, follow the steps required on the platform.
    💡 Good to know
    The steps are similar on each platform and mostly consist of choosing your account and authorizing Brevo to access it.

❗ Google Calendar anti-spam policy

❗️ Important
Due to Google Calendar's new anti-spam policy, if you have not interacted with a client by email before a booking, the meeting will not be automatically added to your Google Calendar. Your client will need to click the confirmation link they receive after the booking. To accept all bookings automatically, follow the procedure below.

To make sure all your bookings appear on Google Calendar automatically:

  1. From Google Calendar, click the Settings icon > Settings.
  2. Under General, go to Event settings.
  3. In the Add invitations to my calendar dropdown, select From everyone.

❌ Disconnect your calendar from Meetings

💡 Good to know

If you disconnect your calendar from Meetings:

  • Your already planned meetings will still be displayed on your primary calendar. However, any future planned meetings won't appear.
  • Your availability won't consider any booked events in your calendar, whether primary or additional. Any time slots previously blocked due to your calendar connection will now be available.

You can always disconnect your calendar from Meetings:

  1. From Brevo, go to Meetings > Availability.
  2. Go to the Connect calendars tab.
  3. Click Disconnect calendar.

Your calendar is disconnected from Meetings.
